Our Watermark awards supports organisations with their environmental projects based within the Wessex Water region.
Schools, parish councils, youth groups and community organisations are eligible to apply for grants of up to £1,500.
Every three months a special project receives the Wessex Watermark gold award worth £2,500.
For its 20th anniversary we launched a special award for water conservation projects in our region.
The Sustainable Watermark provided grants of up to £2,000 to groups working on water saving projects in community halls, schools or other community buildings.
The winners included Rainbow Gardens in Weymouth which installed rainwater harvesting equipment to enable their community garden to be self sufficient in water during the summer.
All applications for Watermark awards are considered by a panel of experts chaired by botanist, television presenter and
Conservation Foundation co-founder David Bellamy.
The awards are open to research projects identified in local authority biodiversity action plans (BAP) or Wessex Water’s own BAP.
Apply using the Watermark award leaflet (see related downloads).
If you are in an area that is affected by our water supply grid programme and you have an environmental project that requires funding, you could be eligible for our grid community awards scheme.
